Mathematics Lab

The TLC Mathematics Lab is a crucial resource that can help you succeed in your math course. Take advantage of our walk-in service and succeed in your math course!

Overview

The Math Lab provides a wide variety of resources for students enrolled in math (MAT) courses at the college. This quiet, tutor-assisted room supports self-study and one-on-one help. In addition, the Math Lab provides downloadable materials and links to external resources via the TLC website.

Math Lab tutors can help students:

  • Use examples and hints to guide a student through difficult problems.
  • Re-explain concepts from a class lesson.
  • Guide a student catching up on a missed class, utilizing Math Lab handouts and text books.
  • Help explain and demonstrate a tough section in the math book.

The Math Lab tutors cannot:

  • Simply provide answers to problems, or do your homework for you.
  • Teach material from a missed class.
  • Check every homework problem and take-home quiz/test.
  • Help a single student for extended periods of time - tutors must be available for everyone.
